    Over half my route is Amazon already, might as well go for a full truck of it.

    Great news. That means more stops but a tighter area thanks to DRA . :likeit:

    Have they figured out how to put address label barcodes on their packages yet? I'm tired of manual entry at every delivery not on the DEL list. And what's with slapping the label right over the seam of the package?!

    That's fine with me, I'd rather be out for 10 hours on a nice summer day than in the middle of winter while it's snowing.

    But from the looks of that deal July 16th will be insane for every company be it UPS express or ground...and I guess the postal service too

    There is another barcode on the label that you can scan. It's sideways next to the address.

    New Amazon labels(as of 2 months ago) lost the address barcode at the bottom of the label, but added a vertical tracking# barcode(because of the label on the seam)

    Right. I wouldn't of thought missing address bar codes is still a thing. If your stations used DRA, it'd be one a non issue. Can't believe so many stations are allow by Memphis to turn DRA off....Hmmm.

    DRA just won't work at some stations, and it most definetly won't work on a lot of routes. Some roads in our service area arent even on a map

    From what I have read about DRA, I pray it never comes up North. Sounds like a nightmare.

    seems walmart is stepping up to their "Xmas in July" promo by offering similar sales on their website & you don't have to pay the $100 fee to be a prime member at wally-world
